There are two very different courses at Carton House - an inland links course designed by Colin Montgomerie and the O'Meara, a parkland style course.
The Montgomerie course has hosted the Irish Open more than once and is a course where the deep bunkering easily come into play. It's an interesting layout with long grass and is heavily undulating and best yet, it's only 15 miles from the city so makes for a perfect golf and city break.
